Chance to find out more about Brighton Hill road improvements in Basingstoke

Aug 24 2018

A number of public exhibitions are being held between 4 and 11 September 2018 for people to find out more about the proposals, with a survey available online from 3 September until 1 October.

 

Councillor Rob Humby, Executive Member for Environment and Transport at Hampshire County Council, said: “These £18.6m improvements will help ease congestion at busy times of day, improve safety and provide people with more opportunities to walk and cycle.  Good infrastructure is vital to Hampshire’s continued economic prosperity, and these improvements on the A30 have been designed to make day to day travel easier for local residents and commuters.

 

“I would encourage local people to come along to the public exhibitions so they can see the plans for themselves, and take the opportunity to talk to the team designing the scheme about any specific aspects in more detail.”

 

Local residents are invited to drop in to any of the following exhibitions:

 

  • Tuesday 4 September, 2:00pm – 8:00pm Camrose Stadium, Western Way, Basingstoke RG22 6EZ
  • Wednesday 5 September, 11:00am - 5:30pm   Church of Christ the King, 7 Sullivan Rd, Basingstoke RG22 4DP
  • Thursday 6 September,  2:00pm – 8:30pm The Warren, Hatch Warren Community Centre, Long Cross Lane, RG22 4XF
  • Tuesday 11 September,  2:00pm – 8:00pm  Camrose Stadium, Western Way, Basingstoke RG22 6EZ

 

Over £24 million of road improvements is being invested in Basingstoke on a number of schemes including the A340 (Thornycroft Roundabout / Aldermaston Road) and the A33 (Popley Way, Crockford Roundabout, Ringway Junction, Binfields Roudabout and Taylors Farm Roundabout).

 

The improvements at  Brighton Hill Roundabout are funded by the Enterprise M3 Local Enterprise Partnership and Hampshire County Council. Work is likely to begin in  2020.
